Design races into the summer with new Motorsport Collection

When they're not styling phones, cologne, toasters, special-edition automobiles and such, Porsche Design keeps itself busy with sportswear for the driver and enthusiast. Previous collections from the company's Driver's Selection have taken all sorts of themes: Martinis, collaborations with polo shirts, even the color white. But this spring the merchandizing division takes to the track with the Motorsport Collection.

The men's lineup includes polo shirt, board shorts, fleeces, t-shirts and more, including a limited-edition Gore-Tex jacket of which only a highly symbolic 911 examples will be made. The Motorsport Collection also includes items for women and children, plus coordinating accessories, all done up in matching white and gray with red trim, complete with sponsor logos in case your own endorsement deal hasn't come in yet. Read all about it in the press release after the jump and check 'em out in the gallery below.

Fred Perry who wear polo shirt

Frederick John Perry born in Stockport May 18, 1909. Right handed player, Career record 106 wins - 12 losses, 8 Grand Slam titles.World No. 1 player for 5 years, four of them consecutive, 1934 through 1938, the first three years as an amateur.
In 1934, 1935 and 1936 and became an internationally feted tennis star. He also became famous for his range of sportswear which bears the Fred Perry logo and is still worn by young tennis players today.
Wegner's next idea was to produce a sports shirt, which was to be made from white knitted cotton pique with short sleeves and buttons down the front. Launched at Wimbledon in 1952, the Fred Perry polo shirt was an immediate success. The brand is best known for its laurel logo, which appears on the left breast of the tennis shirts. The laurel logo (based on the old Wimbledon symbol) was stitched into the fabric of the mens polo shirts instead of merely ironed on (as was the case with the crocodile logo of the competing Lacoste brand).
The Fred Perry logo was nearly a pipe rather than a laurel wreath.
The polo shirt was only available in white until the late 50s when the mods picked up on it and demanded a more varied colour palette. It was the shirt of choice for diverse groups of teenagers throughout the 1960s and 70s, ranging from the skinheads to the Northern Soul scene.
